    Jp Morgan Chase is also a Machiavellian sociopath, maybe he should have applied. He could have been bffs with Jamie Dimon.

    He is not doing anything different than most women do! The only difference is, he took his half/alimony in advance! Women that take half/alimony are just legal con artist!

    There's something missing here. Why would the teacher give a student, a minor, such a sum? Also, I wonder what kind of relationship they actually had. How did the parents not see the charges on their credit cards? Where were his parents when he was jet-setting around? Didn't they notice his absence? I believe, his parents may have created their own monster.

    He ruined peoples lives! His punishment should be horrid! He thought about killing himself, maybe he should have and do the world a favor. Glad he finally got caught, they usually do! All in time!
